Overview

Sixteen-year-old Jess Tennant has never met any of her relatives, until her mom suddenly drags her out of London to spend the summer in the tiny English town where her family's from. Her mom's decision is surprising, but even more surprising is the town's reaction to Jess. Everywhere she goes, people look at her like they've seen a ghost. In a way, they have she looks just like her cousin Freya, who died shortly before Jess came to town.

Jess immediately feels a strange connection to Freya, whom she never got to meet alive. But the more Jess learns about the secrets Freya was keeping while she was alive, the more suspicious Freya's death starts to look. One thing is for sure: this will be anything but the safe, boring summer in the country Jess was expecting.

Sixteen-year-old Jess Tennant is spending her summer in the idyllic small town of Port Sentinel on the English shore, but not by choice. Her beautiful cousin Freya died in a fall from a cliff the summer before, and Jess’s mother is there to support her twin sister, Jess’s aunt. Within days of arriving, Jess is mistaken for Freya by half the town (“As far as they were concerned, Freya was back from the dead. Awkward wasn’t the word”), and she becomes interested in this cousin she never met, and whether her death was truly an accident or suicide, as most people believe. Irish crime author Casey (the Maeve Kerrigan series) makes a foray into YA with this fast-paced thriller, first in a planned series. Jess is hard-edged, blunt, and aggressive—the kind of heroine who doesn’t cower when she’s met with hostility by some of the local teens who knew Freya, and who isn’t going to be dissuaded from finding out what really happened to her cousin. Ages 12–up. Agent: Ariella Feiner, United Agents. (Aug.)
